Responsible Use of the Media (3986)

Saturday Book Pick: Steubenville professor outlines relationship between faith and media.

07/30/2011 Comments (3)

In this, his first book, Eugene Gan seeks to lay out the basic principles that, according to Scripture and the magisterium, “should govern Catholics’ understanding and use of the media,” most especially new media such as the Internet. He expounds on seven “media keys” culled from Church documents on social communications which date back to 1936. These keys include balance, dignity of the human person, truth and skillful development.

Gan, who teaches communication arts at Franciscan University of Steubenville, feels many people are unaware of “the relationship between faith and the media they use.” The principles laid out in the book are a guide to not only facilitating awareness of the...READ MORE

University of Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — “Notre Dame is a place that is not clear about its mission and identity. There is a debate here as to whether it will be a Catholic university at its heart or just in a peripheral way.”

So says Notre Dame history professor Father Wilson Miscamble.

While Notre Dame has made headlines in recent years over salacious — and scandalous — controversies involving The Vagina Monologues on campus, honoring President Barack Obama, and, most recently, a now-former trustee who was generous in her support to abortion-advocacy organizations, daily Mass continues in single-sex dorms on campus. Meanwhile, many faithful professors lie low but provide solid anchors to the school’s...READ MORE

World Trade Center Cross Continues to Be 'Sign of Consolation and Comfort' — and Hope (4613)

Franciscan priest recalled 9/11 symbol's significance when he blessed it again at a July 23 ceremony before its relocation to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

NEW YORK (EWTN News/CNA) — The World Trade Center cross is still a “sign of comfort” to many people, says the Franciscan priest who describes himself as its “unofficial guardian.”

On Sept. 13, 2001, construction worker Frank Silecchia found a 20-foot, cross-shaped T-beam from World Trade Center 1 standing almost upright in the wreckage of World Trade Center 6.

Father Brian Jordan blessed the cross later that year on Oct. 4 and promised that it would be preserved.

Now, almost 10 years after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the priest again blessed the cross in a July 23 ceremony before its relocation to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

China Forces Bishops Into Illicit Consecrations (3502)

Papally named bishops dragged to state-sponsored ordinations. One new bishop is official of Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association.

HONG KONG — Relations between the Holy See and the People’s Republic of China have deteriorated rapidly and seriously in recent weeks. The state-run agency for Catholics dragooned several papally named bishops to participate in the ordinations of two priests who were appointed bishops without Rome’s approval.

After the Holy See responded by pronouncing the two ordinands excommunicated, the State Administration of Religious Affairs replied on July 25, calling Rome’s action “extremely unreasonable and rude.”

Explanations for China’s new heavy hand range from Beijing’s growing confidence in world affairs to its apprehension about the ripple effects of the so-called Arab Spring, the...READ MORE

Judge Rejects Lawsuit That Would End Federal Funding of Embryonic Stem-Cell Research (2443)

'Americans should not be forced to pay for experiments that destroy human life, have produced no real-world treatments, and violate federal law,' said Steven Aden, senior council at the Alliance Defense Fund, which supported the lawsuit. The group is reviewing its options for appeal.

WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — Opponents of embryo-killing stem-cell research said they intend to review their options for appeal after a federal judge rejected a lawsuit that would have ended federal funding for the research.

“Americans should not be forced to pay for experiments that destroy human life, have produced no real-world treatments, and violate federal law,” said Steven Aden, senior council at the Alliance Defense Fund, which supported the lawsuit.

“The law is clear, and we intend to review all of our options for appeal of this decision. In these tough economic times, it makes no sense for the federal government to use taxpayer money for this illegal and unethical purpose.”
